A brand-new promo titled “Not Human” for Syfy’s (Corporate owner of Blastr -Ed.) upcoming new alien conspiracy series, Hunters, has been unleashed.

Based on writer Whitley Strieber’s best-selling novel Alien Hunter, Hunters is the brainchild of Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) and Natalie Chaidez (12 Monkeys, Heroes). With Hurd and Chaidez spearheading the project, I think it's pretty safe to say this one should be good. Crossing my fingers!

Below is the cool new promo -- and for those who didn't get to see it the first time 'round, I've included the first official trailer, released during New York Comic-Con back in October:


Below is an official description from Syfy:

Hunters is inspired by Whitley Strieber’s best-selling novel, Alien Hunter, in which the disappearance of a decorated FBI agent's wife leads him to a secret government unit assembled to hunt a group of ruthless terrorists - shadowy figures that may or may not be from this world.

The series stars Nathan Phillips (Wolf Creek) as Flynn, a headstrong Baltimore FBI agent with a dark past trying to piece together the disappearance of his wife. Britne Oldford (American Horror Story) will play Regan, who is one of the government’s most valuable operatives and may be keeping secrets of her own.  Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck) portrays McCarthy, an unhinged junkie and Hunter cell leader.

Hunters will push boundaries by redefining what makes a terrorist and offer a unique crossover twist between gritty crime drama and sci-fi thriller.  The series will premiere in April 2016.

What do you guys think of the new promo (and trailer) for Syfy's Hunters? Will that be on your must-watch list?
